Larrivee SD-60 SH Slope Shoulder Traditional Dreadnought, 2006

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Price: $2500.

Part of Larrivee’s Traditional series, the Larrivee SD-60 is influenced by early Dreadnought designs, which date as far back as 1916. The earliest Dreadnought body guitars appeared around 1916 and were built by Martin for the Ditson company. The Martin-Ditson Dreadnought body style tends to be long with a wide waist. It has developed into the Dreadnought, the single most used body style in the world.

The original Ditson dreadnoughts had many of the features found here on the Larrivee SD-60. The top is Spruce, the body Indian Rosewood, the neck is Mahogany and Ebony is used for the fingerboard and pyramid-style bridge. As an SH model, the head stock is slotted and the top purfling is herringbone. The 12-fret neck puts the bridge further back towards the vibrating center of the top. The scale length is 25.5 inches and the nut width is 1.89 inches. It’s a fairly wide neck!

Earlier models of the SD-60 were identified on the label and block as being ‘SH’, for SLotted and Herringbone. By this point in 2006, Larrivee has dropped the SH designation.

Larrivee lists this guitar as dating to June 20, 2006, and it was built at the Oxnard, California plant. It is on overall good condition and has had two repairs in our shop – a short crack in the top, visible running down from the high E bridge pin, and the bridge was lifting and has been removed and reglued. There is play wear on the top between the pickguard and bridge. Fret wear is light.

The original hard shell case is included.
